Citizens Bank Provides Loans for Parents Looking to Adopt
Citizens Bank, a NEC member, has partnered with the National Adoption Foundation (NAF) to provide loans for parents trying to adopt a child.
At an average cost of $30,000, many parents take out loans to finance an adoption. The NAF is hoping to help parents by setting up an online portal that will send them to Citizens Bank where they can get loans specifically for adoption. Citizens has given out 6,000 of these loans even before the partnership began.
The NAF was drawn to Citizens because of their commitment to understanding the needs of adoptive parents. Customer service teams have been trained to be aware of the stresses faced by parents and how best to assist them.
The New England Council is happy to see Citizens Bank help parents in adoption process.
